Singer Bill that Would Protect Buyers of Homes with Solar Panels Clears Senate

The New Jersey Senate approved legislation today sponsored by Senator Robert Singer that would require sellers of single-family homes with solar panels to disclose the contact information for the business that installed the solar panels.

“It is not uncommon for the buyer of a property with solar panels to have trouble finding out how to contact the installer in case they need support,” said Singer (R-30). “This bill would require the seller to disclose the contact information for the installer of the solar panels, which would make it much easier for the buyer to contact the installer in the future."

Singer’s bill, S-3234, requires sellers of single-family homes with solar panels to include in the contract for sale, contact information for the business that installed the solar panels, and to indicate whether any lease agreement for the solar panels would be transferred to the buyer.

The seller’s property condition disclosure statement may be used as an alternative to including information about the business that installed the solar panels.
